When this outfit came out a few years ago, I wasn't impressed. But when I joined HB and began to see people's pictures of this outfit I just had to have it. I think my favorite part of this outfit would have to be the shoes. I mean, they are just wonderful! The skirt and the top are just a wonderful pairing, and I just love the blues used throughout the skirt. The pearlized hair clips add that finishing touch that just make this outfit perfect. For anyone willing to get this off ebay, it's a must!

I really like this outfit. However, I don't like how tight the pants are on some of my dolls. I can't get the darn things to close up on some of my gals. I do however think this is a great outfit and I give it an A.

Everything about this outfit is great, with the exception of having to fight to get the top on. I have to agree with Johanna that if used quite often this top could get stretched out. This was a b-day from my best friend years ago, and I must say it was a wonderful choice on his part. A+.

This is a very lovely outfit. I'm quite happy with this dress and I used it last year for Marisol in celebration of her retirement. This year Jess will be in the gown for her the same reason. I think this is a wonderful dress to be used as a send off for my LE gals. I think this is such an elegant dress because of the gloves and fancy shoes. I will say I'm not too sure about the hair tie because I'm not fond about the different colored gems. To be completely honest, I think the hair tie looks more like something a person could use in their own hair. I have to agree with Jordyn: although you may not see a girl in this type of dress too often, it's not impossible. I give this dress and A+ because it's just wonderful!

I love my Maggie, but to be honest I prefer the Mattel #14's. I have a PM (I think, no body tag), and as pretty as she is, my biggest problem with her is that she can't fit into a lot of the newer AGT outfits because she is chubbier. Plus, the Mattel 14's seem to have even darker hair than my doll, but that may just be the way photographs make the M's hair look compared to PM dolls. Although I prefer the Mattel #14's, I will always love my Maggie because she was my first AG doll.

I love my Isabella and I'm so glad that I have this doll. I had some trouble getting one with a good wig as well, and to be honest I had to go through two before I got this one. This newer one has a much better and thicker wig and she is here to stay. The hair and eye combination is amazing!

Ha ha! You crack me up Colette! I do use mine, but that's simply because I bought the accessories set so it seems to work well with ear muffs and muff. However, I do agree that it is pretty yucky! It looks a bit silly and it makes the doll look like they are choking! When I first got the outfit I tried to see if I could use it as a headband or something because I personally do not like those sorts of things for myself or on anyone else.
Of the holiday outfits, this ranks up there with the Radiant Rhinestones Outfit. This outfit is just gorgeous and every bit of this set is great. I love the soft and layered chiffon skirt, the velvety black long-sleeved top with its lovely design, the adorable dress shoes, and the textured tights. This outfit definitely looks great with the accessories as well. This is an A++++++ outfit all the way!
I really love the pineapple motif for this outfit. I had went back and forth on this outfit, but I'm so glad that I got it. I really dislike the tightness of the outfit, but overall I'm very happy with it. For the tightness, I give this outfit an A-.

I can't believe I didn't like this set when it was available! Luckily I finally got the outfit, but not exactly at the wisest time of the year for ebay (Christmas). This is such a wonderful set because of all the little details on the shirt and clogs, the cute apron, oven mitt and pot holder. And who can forget those hair ties?! Adorable! This in an A+++ outfit!

I just got this set today for a gift from my dad (boy is he good at knowing what I want for Christmas! ), and I love it! The details in this set are amazing, and I just love the pink tint that was used for the glassware. The tablecloth and napkins are just wonderful as well, and the sorbet scoops are so neat because they're shaped just like they were scooped out of a container. This set gets an A+++++++ from me!

I love my Kit! I got Kit when she was first introduced, and I can definitely say that Kit dolls look different now! Although I love my Kit doll, she has a grey skin tone and her face mold looks slightly different than other Mattel dolls. I think if I had a choice between the two, I would prefer the new Kit dolls instead, simply for the peachy tone to their skin. When I originally recieved Kit, the first doll I recieved had one leg shorter than the other. Upon exchanging the doll for another, I noticed in that short of a time the material in her outfit was much different. The first doll had a much nicer cardigan set, while the other seemed cheaply made. I'm not sure if that is how they are made now, or it's simply because of which factory the outfit came from. But, either way Kit drew me in because she was so different from any of the dolls AG had come out with at that point. For anyone considering purchasing Kit, I say go for it! You will not regret buying this doll!

I can't be 100% percent positive that my Felicity is a pre Mattel doll or not, but I'm guessing she is since she doesn't have a body tag. Felicity was the second doll I purchased and I just love her. I had intended for her to be a historical doll, but after they retired so many of her items I really didn't want to continue her collection. Recently I have realized I would prefer her to be a historical doll as was intended and I'm very happy with that choice. Felicity's hair is not a lovely red but more of an auburn color. She has the soft eyelashes that match her hair color and lovely green eyes. Right now she is sporty her original meet outfit and is in dire need of some new clothes. She only has two outfits! I need to either learn how to restring Felicity or send her in. The poor girl's legs are loosey goosey! But for anyone thinking of getting a PM Felicity, I say go for it!

I recieved the most beautiful Josefina from my friend and fellow member Colette. I cannot say just how beautiful Josefina really is! I took her hair out her braid when she arrived because a section had come loose, and let me tell you her hair was very hard for me to get back into a nice braid! I think it was just me, but I had to seek the assistance of my aunt who braided my cousins' hair for years. We got it back in a lovely braid and she looks magnificent! I recommend Josefina, she is definitely one of the prettiest historical dolls in my opinion.

This is a great outfit. I adore empire waist dresses so I was very pleased when I got this one. I think the dress looks great with or without the vest, and the hat is a great finishing touch. The boots look perfect with this outfit as well. A+!

I'm a sucker for miniature food and this is no exception! This set has so many pieces of food and I adore the beautiful design on the canteen. I will say the only part that I was surprised about was just how stiff the tortillas were. For some reason I assumed they would be much more flexible. So aside from the surprise about the torillas, this set gets an A+!

This is definitely one of my favorite outfits for Josefina. I got this outfit on ebay this past summer and I just love it on her! I was surprised that I got it for such a great deal when all of other Limited Edition outfits go for so much more than compared to this outfit. My favorite part of this outfit would definitely be the skirt. I just love that shade of green they used for this outfit. I give this outfit an A+++!
